Important Information

Popsicles for Puppies

This morning an email was sent to parents who expressed interest in volunteering for our event on Friday, May 8th. The times can be done in shifts, from 10:30 am-3:30 pm. If you are interested in volunteering, please send me an email and I will email the details to you. I'd love to have a few more volunteers!

Friday Lunch

Please have your child bring a disposable lunch to school on Friday. It will just be easier for us to eat our lunch outside on Friday, due to accommodating everyone's recess schedule. Please also feel free to send in a beach towel to sit on for the day and sunscreen. There is an overhang we will be under, but I will be having the kiddos bring out math games and book totes for "down times" in our schedule. We will be doing this rain or shine, so fingers crossed for a beautiful day!

Lunch & New Background Checks

All guests and parent volunteers must have their background check completed prior to volunteering at school or having lunch with their child. The online background checks may take up to 6 days to process. You do not need to complete a background check prior to visiting if you have had one done in HSE within the past 3 years. ALL guests must also complete an online anti-bullying training webinar.
